Lion Hotel
Ranked #1 of 2 Brewood B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 August 2017

Folks should be aware that Brewood is not really a great place to try and park... we arrived early luckily and then drove around the town trying to find parking.. eventually finding some street parking a distance away from the restaurant and as such we had a good 5+ minute walk to get to it. There is aparently a small car park in the only street we probably didn't drive down.. no apparent signage for parking that we saw...nevermind.
We got to the Lion Hotel which is quite an old looking building from the outside but delightfully more modern inside.. A very busy place when we visited but great friendly staff who were very efficient... and the food was absolutely beautiful from a delciously varied menu.. Quite pricey though.. we had three full courses and drinks it came to between £50 - £60 per head but was absolutely worth it.. will visit again, excellent experience with old friends.

Room Tip: I'm not sure this is actually a hotel??

POSITIVES -
*Convenient location. *New décor, making attractive use of old features. *Friendly staff. *Tasty, freshly cooked breakfast.

NEGATIVES-
*Secluded parking. (We parked on road outside the shops.) *Shower in our room either scalding hot or freezing cold. Couldn't select hair washing attachment (seized up). Also water leaked from mixer taps. Staff did thank us for letting them know about the faulty shower.

Room Tip: Lapley room is at the back of the hotel and was quiet.

This is a well renovated village hotel with modern well appointed rooms and a contemporary grill and restaurant. What should have been a pleasant business stay was spoiled by a few small but significant issues. My room was at the top of the hotel up some very narrow and steep stairs. These were not an issue to me but for anybody less mobile or with a big suitcase they could be a problem. In the room the toilet seat was broken and the shower tray did not drain. The bigger issue was the very poor wifi signal. I had to go to another pub in the evening just to catch up with e mails! My final issue was the breakfast. It consisted of orange juice, no choice. Coco pops rice crispies or cornflakes and four cooked options. If you want fruit,croissants, bread or muesli for breakfast you will be disappointed. They ask that if you have issues you should speak to the staff. I did but there wasn't very much interest. All in all I think there is better value to be had for the £80 that they charged for a single room

The Lion in Brewood is a recently renovated, spotless very old hotel with a staff that strives to be as friendly and helpful as they can. It is located in the very heart of this very charming village. Our room at the very top had exposed rough wooden beams tied together with a wooden peg. A considerable amount of storage space was provided. The bathroom was quite modern. The queen-sized bed was comfortable enough to get a good night's sleep. The towels were enormous. Breakfast, included, was good. But the devil was in the details. To get to the room necessitated navigating several flights of a tight spiral staircase. This necessitated my dragging our 50 lb. suitcase up those steps. The only person available to help with baggage was a slight though plucky young woman. And what if we were handicapped. There was no warning when making reservations. The shower stall drain was very slow, resulting in a near flood while showering. The toilet seat not only was very loose, IT DID NOT FIT THE BOWL, resulting in at least one unfortunate circumstance. The little glass convenience shelf was loosely anchored to the wall resulting in a tilt downward so that things tended to slide off. The maid did not replenish our little bottle of shower gel. The dramatic wooden beam was a dust collector. No USB ports, though numerous electric outlets. Wi-Fi was defective but we were able to fix it from our end. You don't go to a place like the Lion exoecting a Holiday Inn experience. But they could do much better with a little more attention to details.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Lion Hotel, built in the 18th century, was originally two establishments, namely The Giffard Arms and The Red Lion. They continued to have two different proprietors until 1850, when The Giffard Arms and The Red Lion was under a single proprietor and was presumably combined into one establishment. The name seems to have been shortened to The Lion by 1867.It was in The Red Lion that the Hon. John Byng was "put into a white-washed room, and got a miserable, neither hot - nor cold dinner" in 1792.The Giffard Arms was used as a magistrates court and the Magistrates and prisoners would enter by the now blocked off door on the far right of the building.In 1870 and for many years there were many different licensees for The Lion, including E. Bagnall and A. Bourne, and in 1937 the licensee was a Mrs Anne Ball. The combined premises subsequently had a spell as a "posh" Three Star Hotel (AA & RAC).A magnificent staircase was removed from the interior of The Giffard Arms in 1970.At present, The Lion Hotel is a Grade 11 listed building. ... more   less
